Second-round draft pick Carlos Hyde joined "The KNBR Morning Show" on Thursday.

Hyde said a few notable things:

-Hyde was bowling during the NFL Draft when he was selected by the 49ers.

-Hyde worked out with Frank Gore in Miami this offseason. "I had no clue I would have a chance to play with him," the rookie said. "That’s pretty sweet to have an opportunity to play with Frank Gore. He’s a legend."

>> Hyde was added to create competition with Gore and rest of San Francisco's running backs.
